Do you really want to expose Central Admin through a WFE? Doesn't matter if your network is internal only or external / public facing, it might be a security concern.

You can provision Central Administration by going to Central Admin --> System Settings --> Manage services on server -->

use the pull down to select the WFE you are working on --> Select the Central Administration Service and click on Start - the site will provision, may take a few minutes

But please reevaluate why you are doing this.

Ok, here some more back round. I was asked to clean up our Sharepoint enviroment from the previous group who left the enviroment a mess.

For our AAM mapping our CA site is listed using it's host name like http://server1 and the intenrla url points to http://server1. This is done for all three of our WFE's.

After our MS Risk ASsessment I have be asked to change the host names listed in the AAM for proper DNS names while site providing HA for our CA site.  All of our WFE are load balanced using a Netscaler. I am looking for the best way to load balancing our CA site using  proper DNS names. I really think using the Netscaler is overkill for a CA site and only want to use this as a last resort.

I am open to suggestions
